Music legend Lyor Cohen works for YouTube now, and he wants you to pay $10 a month – Recode – All
Why? Let him tell you. Lyor Cohen used to complain about YouTube. Now he wants you to pay $10 a month for it.
The very short answer is that Cohen used to run big record labels. Now he works at YouTube, as its emissary to music labels and the people who make music.
The longer answer is that Cohen wasn’t the only person at a music label with a gripe about YouTube. Many label executives have long complained that YouTube, which makes billions of dollars selling ads, doesn’t send them enough of that ad money.
In response, YouTube introduced an ad-free subscription service in the hope of mollifying the labels. Today they are rolling out a new version of that service.
And if you want the really long answer, with a bunch of turns, stops, starts and weird pauses, then I have a podcast for you: It’s the interview I conducted with Cohen last week, when he stopped by the Vox Media offices in Manhattan to show off the new service...

YouTube’s head of original shows admits Netflix is ‘too far ahead’ to compete with – Silicon Alley
Susanne Daniels, the global head of original content for YouTube, said in a recent interview that her company's original programming can't compete with Netflix's investment in original content.
"I don’t think you can compete with Netflix at this point; they're too far ahead," Daniels told IndieWire of YouTube Red, the company's subscription programming service.
Daniels added, "I do think, in time, we can compete with Hulu and Amazon and certainly Apple, and hopefully, you'll see us do that."
Netflix, which will have spent an estimated $8 billion on content in 2018, reached a mark of 125 million global subscribers in April.
Netflix has faced competition in the TV streaming field from massive companies like Google parent Alphabet and Amazon for years, but at least one of its competitors sees the field-leading streaming service as out of reach.
Susanne Daniels, the global head of original content for YouTube, admitted in a recent interview with IndieWire that her company's ori ...

The data scientist behind the Cambridge Analytica scandal did paid consultancy work for Facebook and has close ties to staff (FB) – Silicon Alley
Data scientist Aleksandr Kogan said he once had close ties to Facebook, despite being blamed by the company for his role in the Cambridge Analytica data scandal.
Kogan said he acted as a paid consultant in 2015 and even gave talks about behavioural psychology to Facebook employees.
Facebook blamed Kogan and his company, Global Science Research, for creating an app which harvested millions of users' profiles used by Cambridge Analytica.
Facebook said it was unaware of Kogan’s connection to Cambridge Analytica.
Facebook hasn't been totally upfront about its close ties with a major player in the Cambridge Analytica data scandal.
Aleksandr Kogan is the data scientist who created a quiz app which harvested 87 million Facebook user profiles, then passed that information to Cambridge Analytica, in breach of Facebook's terms of service.
Facebook has since sought to paint Kogan as the main villain in the scandal, but the data scientist told BuzzFeed he had a deep relationship with the co ...

Netflix is betting billions on its original shows and movies — but this analyst warns it’s a far riskier gamble than investors realize (NFLX) – Silicon Alley
The bull case for Netflix has a big flaw, argues Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter, a longtime skeptic of the company.
Optimists think the company's big investment in original content, which is sinking the company ever deeper in debt, will eventually pay off in lower costs, Pachter noted.
But that argument ignores the fact that Netflix licenses the vast majority of its content, including nearly all of its most popular "originals" — and licensing fees just keep going up.
One of the central pillars of the bull case for Netflix may be resting on shaky grounds.
Investors and analysts backing the stock have based their optimism, in part, on the company's growing investment in its "originals" — the shows and movies that are exclusive to Netflix. Although that investment is already costing the company billions of dollars, it should pay off in the long run, because the "originals" will help insulate it from rising costs of licensing other companies' content, the thinking goes. Over ...

HBO’s programming boss says Netflix’s enormous spending in TV feels like the ‘irrational exuberance’ of the 90s dot-com bubble – Silicon Alley
HBO programming chief Casey Bloys had some criticism for the runaway spending of his network's streaming rivals, Netflix and Amazon, in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Bloys speculated that widespread, exorbitant TV spending could mean that the industry is "in a bubble."
He said that his rivals' spending feels like "irrational exuberance," in a reference to Alan Greenspan's label for the dot-com bubble of the 1990s.
HBO programming chief Casey Bloys had a degree of criticism for the big spending of his network's streaming-based rivals, Netflix and Amazon, in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
In a conversation centered on the million-dollar salaries HBO is paying stars Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon for a second season of its hit series "Big Little Lies," Bloys also discussed the record-breaking, nine-figure contracts Netflix has given to successful showrunners Ryan Murphy and Shonda Rhimes in the past year...

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Says He Won’t Resign Despite ‘Mess Up’ – The Wrap
Don’t hold your breath waiting for Mark Zuckerberg to resign — or be pushed out.
The Facebook co-founder and chief executive said he’s still the right man to lead the company despite its recent turmoil, on a conference call with the media on Wednesday afternoon. When asked if he’s best equipped to steer Facebook, Zuckerberg answered with a quick “yes,” before expanding.
“I think life is about learning from the mistakes and figuring out what you need to do to move forward,” said Zuckerberg. “I think the reality of a lot of this is that when you’re building something like Facebook that is unprecedented in the world, there are going to be things that you mess up. And if we’d gotten this right, we’d have messed something else up.”

Apple va permettre le téléchargement et la suppression des données de son identifiant – MacGeneration
Début mai, les utilisateurs de produits Apple, qui sont généralement aussi titulaires d'un identifiant Apple, pourront se rendre sur le portail de gestion de leur compte pour y télécharger une copie de toutes les données stockées sur les serveurs du constructeur. Bloomberg explique également que le site permettra à l'utilisateur de modifier les informations personnelles le concernant, de désactiver temporairement leur compte, et de le supprimer.
Si l'on peut déjà éditer une partie de son profil depuis le site d'Apple, en télécharger les données exige actuellement d'en passer directement par le constructeur. Si l'Europe est la première concernée par ces nouveautés (le reste du monde le sera par la suite), c'est pour une bonne raison : c'est à partir du 25 mai qu'entre en vigueur dans l'Union européenne le règlement géné ...

Snapchat is building the same kind of data-sharing API that just got Facebook into trouble – Recode – All
What timing! Snapchat is building a way for people to use their Snapchat account to connect with third-party apps. The idea, in theory, would let Snapchat users grant outside companies access to their Snapchat data to help personalize other services.
If that’s the case — and it looks like it is, based on these screenshots Mashable published on Tuesday — it would mean that Snap is building out the same kind of API that just got Facebook into a whole mess of trouble.
You can’t make these things up.
Mashable saw a beta version of Snapchat with a new section called “Connected Apps,” with text that reads, “These apps are connected to your Snapchat account. Choose an app to control what it has access to.”
Snapchat currently has an advertising API so people can buy ads through third-party dashboards, but it doesn’t let people use their Snapchat account on other apps, or help people connect with their Snapchat friends on other platforms...
